Dementia Care
April 8, 2021

The subject of this Month’s Podcast with Napthens H&S  is manual handling at work; a subject which is certainly relevant and of significant importance in the health and social care sector and an area in which meeting your statutory duties and obligations is critical to ensure the protection of you, your business, your employees and those who use your services.

During this session, we’re going to cover a number of important points on the subject of Manual Handling. We will look at the key terms and definitions, the legal requirements, high hazard tasks and operations and some of the fundamental actions required to reduce the risk of injuries arising as a result of manual handling activities.

Generally, work-related ill health and injury is estimated to be a £16.2Billion problem in the UK annually, manual handling is a significant contributor to this number and if you’re reading this, you probably work in, own or operate a business in which Manual Handling is one of your most significant hazards.
